Great. Let’s just call it an additional 13 billion a year so what does that look like in brackets? Current flat tax and a progressive using Martwick’s numbers? Don’t like Marwick’s plan? Then get JB’s! Where’s Biss the math geek when you need him?!
Median income used in their study doesn’t seem accurate by about $25k.

OK, here I go. The k-12 schools don’t need anymore money. What they need is elimination of the antiquated school funds buckets. We have one budget and should be able to spend money as we need to. Public health option would fiscally ruin this state, just look at Vermont and why they bailed on the public option. We can’t afford universal preschool and it doesn’t produce enhanced educational outcomes. Instead call it daycare and find a way to fund it without robbing education.
For many years a friend and I had season tickets for the Cardinals. I moved from the area, but my friend bought a PSL for the Rams and never missed a game. And I remained a fan as well, but only saw a few games in the Dome.
Since the Rams relocated I have lost all interest, as has my friend, and, given the changes these past few years, have no interest in following the Billionaire owners or the multi-millionaire players of a “sport” that is hardly relevant any more to my life or my sanity.

My Chiefs lost last night. But what a game. Mahomes looks like a up and coming QB.
Generally it seems Bears fans are the most critical and least optimistic of any set of Chicago sports fans.
Any time something doesn’t go great it is the end of all time…
In a Thompson pivot, does anyone else think the IHSA should move away from conference play for football and to a district system like other states use. It might reduce some of the conference hopping we are seeing now and makes the playing field more level for smaller schools in big school conferences.
to the open thread topic…. Bears, come on. just giving more fodder to those Miami fans (and players) who can never stop talking about their 1985 win vs. Bears. and KC, you still are a contender but I was so hoping you could wipe the smirk off Brady’s face. also really interesting watching lineups of players this weekend. the racial makeup of the players on the field shows how heartless and clueless the President is re the knee thing. reminds of a Tweet seen today….Trump uses rhetoric for poor white men and makes policy for rich white men.
Never PC and dont forget the kids that get thrown in to the special ed designation (funds) that are a discipline issue not slow learners. Millions a year goes into that fund to “keep them at grade level” far more additional staff needed to mamage the load ….the ugly truth is many districts dont know what to do so they put them there. Meanwhill back to the Bears lack of ability to close the deal in tight games. Coaching staff has gagged on late game play calling. Example in the Packs game and the Fish game…. do what you did the rest of the game. Or you coud run the Veer.(snark)… the pile of bodies takes 2 mins to un do and the game is over. Anyone at Halas still have Robby Goulds number ?
